Housing Needs In New Suburbs Of Indian Metropolii: Case Study Of Kothrud, Pune, Hemalata C. Dandekar, Sashikant B. Sawant Nov 1998

Housing Needs In New Suburbs Of Indian Metropolii: Case Study Of Kothrud, Pune, Hemalata C. Dandekar, Sashikant B. Sawant

City and Regional Planning

This article, a survey of three localities in a rapidly expanding suburb of Pune, differentiated classwise, illustrates the segmented utilisation of livelihood opportunities, services and facilities by the residents of the region. More importantly, the article attributes the suburb's robust growth to its timeliness in meeting the emerging housing needs of the upwardly mobile middle class living in the heart of the Pune city and also suggests, that its relatively low infrastructural cost may be an incentive attracting the retired members of middle class households of Mumbai.

La Constitución En Un Estado Descentralizado, Fernando Carrión Mena Aug 1998

La Constitución En Un Estado Descentralizado, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El proceso centralizador de la sociedad, la economía, la cultura, la política y el territorio -en un contexto del globalizador y de revolución científico tecnológicos -conduce al desarrollo de su antítesis: la descentralización. Este proceso que se inició en Europa con una década de anticipación a lo ocurrido en América Latina, requiere ser conocido y analizado; es necesario hacer un balance de las principales experiencias latinoamericanas, así como de la historia de los procesos particulares. Mucho más, si se constata que no hay un modelo de descentralización latinoamericano; aunque es innegable la existencia de ciertas constantes. Cada país, en cada ...

Gobierno Local Y Nuevos Liderazgos: La Hora De Los Alcaldes, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

La revolución industrial marcó el inicio de la urbanización de la economía a escala planetaria, L gracias al desarrollo tecnológico que significó el invento de la máquina a vapor que permitió almacenar energía e independizar la producción industrial de las fuentes energéticas naturales, en especial de la hidráulica.

La industria migró hacia los mercados concentrados en las ciudades como lugar privilegiado de la demanda -reduciendo los costos de transporte de las mercancías. Este traslado de los medios de producción llevó consigo a los pobladores, de esta forma, el desarrollo de las ciudades en los países desarrollados estuvo ligado, desde su ...

Estrategias De Planificación Urbano-Ambientales, Fernando Carrión Mena Jun 1998

Estrategias De Planificación Urbano-Ambientales, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

Las relaciones entre los temas urbano y ambiental aún no han sido suficientemente definidas, porque no se han logrado construir las respectivas mediaciones entre lo ambiental, lo urbano, la planificación y la gestión. Se los ha entendido independientemente y, en ciertos casos, como si fueran antagónicos. De allí que en este mundo de las dicotomías el maniqueísmo tienda a salir a flote: mientras lo natural, lo rural, el campo son lo bueno; lo artificial, lo urbano, la ciudad son lo malo. En este contexto se ha satanizado la ciudad frente al medio ambiente, con lo cual la urbe es vista ...


La Descentralización: Un Proceso De Confianza Nacional, Fernando Carrión Mena Jun 1998

La Descentralización: Un Proceso De Confianza Nacional, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El 10 de Agosto de 1992 ocurre un hecho inédito en la historia ecuatoriana: Sixto Durán Ballén, ex alcalde de Quito asume la Presidencia de la República; León Febres Cordero, ex Presidente Constitucional se convierte en alcalde de Guayaquil y Jamil Mahuad, ex-candidato presidencial llega a la alcaldía de Quito.

Pero aún hay más. El Ecuador, país con una vieja tradición municipalista, confirma esta tendencia general en la justa electoral de 1996: Abadalá Bucaram, ex-Alcalde de Guayaquil, reemplaza a Durán Ballén, ex-alcalde de Quito, en la Presidencia de la República. León Febres Cordero es reelegido alcalde de Guayaquil y Jamil ...


The Potential For Planning An Industrial Cluster In Barre, Vermont: A Case Of 'Hard-Rock' Resistance In The Granite Industry, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval Jan 1998

The Potential For Planning An Industrial Cluster In Barre, Vermont: A Case Of 'Hard-Rock' Resistance In The Granite Industry, John Mullin, Zenia Kotval

John R. Mullin

Throughout the world, there has been considerable interest among economic planners concerning the creation of industrial clusters. Efforts to stimulate, nurture and reinforce such clusters can be found in virtually all of the European nations, as well as in Japan, Korea, China and others. These efforts range from reinforcing the strengths of promising areas to stimulating the creation of totally new technologies. The identification of such clustering opportunities has become a critical element of national, state, regional and local planning activities. While there are many researchers who have focused on this topic, the Harvard Business School's Michael Porter has ...


Old And New Theories Of Industry Clusters, Edward J. Feser Jan 1998

Old And New Theories Of Industry Clusters, Edward J. Feser

Edward J Feser

The paper reviews the broad range of theories and ideas that constitute, often implicitly, the logic behind strategic cluster policies. The title of the paper notwithstanding, there is no theory of industry clusters, per se. Even Porter’s (1990) seminal contribution is more a theory of firm competitiveness than clusters. There is, instead, a variety of older and newer theories of 1) the interrelationships between economic actors that clusters describe, and 2) the implications of such interrelationships for economic growth and development. Industry clusters have proven a useful way of characterizing webs of relationships between and among firms and other ...


Architecture And The Production Of Postcard Images: Tradition Vs. Critical Regionalism In Curitiba, Clara Irazabal Jan 1998

Architecture And The Production Of Postcard Images: Tradition Vs. Critical Regionalism In Curitiba, Clara Irazabal

Clara Irazabal

In Curitiba, Brazil, the building of architectural monuments that make use of a direct vocabulary of tradition has been one of the major means to construct the city image in the last two decades. The government of Curitiba has plagued the city with foreign-styled landmarks mostly based on selective samples of European traditions. Such attempts strive to construct a city image that creates a sense that Curitiba has a heritage connected with the European established traditions. Examples of those ethnic landmarks are the Polonaise Memorial, and the German, Italian and Portuguese parks. Such monuments depict a cosmopolitan, international city, freed ...


Ciudades Intermedias Y Poder Local En El Ecuador: Una Aproximación Analítica, Fernando Carrión Mena Jan 1998

Ciudades Intermedias Y Poder Local En El Ecuador: Una Aproximación Analítica, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El tema de este libro y del Seminario que lo originó (Seminario Internacional sobre Ciudades Intermedias, realizado en Enero 1985 en Ecuador) es de gran pertinencia e importancia para el momento que vive América Latina en general y el Ecuador en particular;.significa también una toma de posición frente a una problemática aguda que necesariamente debe ser debatida y discutida en toda su extensión; más aún, por el hecho dé que el tratamiento de los problemas urbanos, como todo problema social, no escapa al quehacer político. Precisamente el tratamiento político de lo urbano puede desarrollarse con la discusión de las ...


La Universidad En Red, Fernando Carrión Mena Jan 1998

La Universidad En Red, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

En el Ecuador hay una corriente dominante que suele identificar la acción académica universitaria con la formación profesional, principalmente inscrita en los atributos de la relación pedagógica enseñanza-aprendizaje y al interior de una institucionalidad formal: la Universidad. Sin embargo, la acción pedagógica va más allá de la formación profesional y de los claustros de la institucionalidad, porque busca formar ciudadanía en el concomitante proceso de contribución al bienestar colectivo.

Con el libro Situación de la Educación Superior Ecuatoriana: informe de labores, escrito por Medardo Mora, se sientan las bases para superar esta visión tradicional de la universidad. En primer lugar ...

La Descentralización Desde El Gobierno Intermedio, Fernando Carrión Mena

Fernando Carrión Mena

El proceso centralizador de la sociedad, la economía, la cultura, la política y el territorio -en un contexto de globalización y revolución científico tecnológico- ha conducido al desarrollo de su antítesis: la descentralización. Esto significa que el Estado nacional se encuentra ante la paradoja contenida en el concepto de globalización: globalización y localización.

Este proceso, que se inició en Europa con una década de anticipación a lo ocurrido en América Latina, requiere ser conocido y analizado. De allí que en este contexto y para replantear el futuro de la descentralización en el Ecuador sea necesario hacer un balance de las ...

A Build-Out Study Of The Mid-Connecticut Valley Of Massachusetts, Center For Economic Development Jan 1998

A Build-Out Study Of The Mid-Connecticut Valley Of Massachusetts, Center For Economic Development

Center for Economic Development Technical Reports

This is a study of growth potential in seven towns located along an east-west axis in the mid Connecticut River Valley in western Massachusetts. It employs a planning method commonly described as a build-out analysis in which lands are identified that are both physically suitable and available for future development. Zoning regulations, population growth projections, land conservation trends, and other constraints are then used to project different growth scenarios that result in estimations of the number of new residences that can be accommodated over time and the increases in population that would be likely based on those. The results of ...


Assessing The Benefit Of Improved Traveler Information: A Pseudo-Dynamic Modeling Approach , Michael David Anderson Jan 1998

Assessing The Benefit Of Improved Traveler Information: A Pseudo-Dynamic Modeling Approach , Michael David Anderson

Retrospective Theses and Dissertations

This research develops an assessment methodology to estimate traveler information benefits using regional travel demand and microscopic simulation approaches in combination. This method uses the strengths of the two conventional approaches in an innovative way, providing essentially a pseudo-dynamic model capability that uses readily available data and is easy to understand and implement. The pseudo-dynamic model provides measures of delay that are more reasonable than those available through either of the model sub-components individually;While attempts have been made to develop dynamic regional planning models, regional model "simulation" is not yet available. Therefore, the approach addresses several gaps in capabilities ...

The Impact Of The Physical And Cultural Geography Of Southeastern Utah On Latter-Day Settlement, Sally Timmins Mandurino Jan 1998

The Impact Of The Physical And Cultural Geography Of Southeastern Utah On Latter-Day Settlement, Sally Timmins Mandurino

All Theses and Dissertations

The Latter-day Saint settlements in southeastern Utah, namely Bluff, Monticello and Blanding, were impacted by the physical and cultural geography of the area. These geographic elements hindered, and in some cases prevented, the Latter-day Saint colonizers from fulfilling the seven basic principles of Latter-day Saint expansion and colonization in the Great Basin. The impacts of physical geography were the geology, the climate, the soil and the rivers and streams. The impacts of cultural geography were the Navajo Indian Tribe, the Paiute Indian Tribe, and the criminal element. This thesis discusses the geographic elements of the area, how they impacted the ...
